For the past 30 years, I have supported people navigating anxiety, stress, and overwhelm to rediscover their aliveness, agency, and the gifts that can come from even the most difficult experiences. As a highly interactive and warm person, I believe the quality of our therapeutic relationship is a major part of healing. Deeply intuitive and strength based by nature, I help you recognize your innate wisdom to creatively reshape your life. In the supportive environment of therapy, you are invited to unfold at your very own pace while facing challenges and perceived limitations.

I bring cultural sensitivity and social consciousness to my work as a therapist, supervisor, and teacher. Collaboration with clients has taught me the importance of skilful navigation between historical pain and present time resilience.

After extensive training and practice in a variety of therapeutic modalities, I believe that my flexibility and appreciation for individual needs and learning styles is what is most helpful in deciding on a treatment approach.
